Verbarius Digitless Clock
If you like the QLOCKTWO but not its price tag, check out Art Lebedev’s grammatically-inclined Verbarius clock. Verbarius’ simple shape is complemented by its equally simple controls (up/down for hours and minutes), and a language selection button to choose from over 20 languages. Time is spelled out behind tinted glass on its glowing LCD screen in the same way you’d read it out. For a challenge, set it to German – just preferably not when you’ve got important appointments or finals.
